More General IDE documentation is coming soon. For now, here are some useful notes:
The same database is shared between preview and publish apps.
Published apps are viewable to the world whether or not they are included in the app directory.
To remove an app from the directory, uncheck the box and publish it again.
To rename an app once it has been published, publish it under a different name.
To delete an app, visit the myapps page.
The interactive shell lets you try out new functions and libraries quickly.
The shell functions are evaluated in a separate context from your app, but they share the same storage backend.
To use storage in the shell (or any other library), you must first type import("storage") into the shell.
You can click on previously executed shell statements instead of typing them again.
The debug log lets you record debugging messages and easily view them later.
Uncaught exceptions are automaticaly logged to an app's debug log.
You can log your own messages my importing the dlog library (import("dlog")), and using the functions dlog.fatal(), dlog.error(), dlog.warn(), and dlog.info().
Click the "Log" tab in the IDE to view your app's debug log.
More information and an example are available on the dlog library reference page.
Known IDE Bugs:
If the shell connection is dropped, you can reload the whole IDE page to re-establish it.
